What's the easiest way to get camera feeding images into the Beagle?
Has anyone done this? I know the Cortex CPU has the ability to work
specifically with imagers so that's a start!

Interfacing with imagers is a feature of the OMAP35x processor, not
the Cortex CPU. The interface is not connected on Beagle. Instead,
people are using USB webcams to feed video into Beagle.


A list of supported linux usb webcams is available at

Right sorry I meant the OMAP SoC not the Cortex CPU itself! :slight_smile:

You can download the UVC driver from and use standard V4L2 based applications to capture video / images.


UVC is already in the upstream 2.6.26 kernel :slight_smile:
